Liz Lemon, head writer of the sketch comedy show "TGS with Tracy Jordan", must deal with an arrogant new boss and a crazy new star, all while trying to run a successful television show without losing her mind.
Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law-abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life-changing prison can really be.
After being rescued from an underground bunker in which she lived the past fifteen years, Kimmy Schmidt decides to move to New York City to have a normal life. She makes friends with her new roommate Titus, and works as a babysitter for Jacqueline Voorhees, the wife of a billionaire with many issues. Even though many obstacles are thrown her way, Kimmy makes the best of her new life while having to adapt to the new world around her.Written by
Tina Fey and Jerry Minor's characters of the bumbling prosecutors were based on prosecutors Marcia Clark and Chris Darden of the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial. Aside from the physical resemblances; during the course of the trial and afterward, Clark and Darden were accused of incompetence and rumored to have been in a relationship. See more »

I have long been a big fan of Tina Fey and her comedic work, and "Kimmy" is no exception. It is a wonderful series that manages to combine the three virtues of being silly, heart-warming, and completely hilarious. Titus is an exceptional character, and his subplots are consistently some of the better things on television.
Some of the episodes can go on for a bit too long, and many of the jokes about the bunker are much over-used. Its attempts at being topical are well-done, if a bit shoe-horned into the plot. Yet through it all, the show remains tender, if not exactly fresh.
(I have seen this several times, rewatching the entire series most recently in May 2017)
